La Tulipe opens flower and gift shoppe in downtown Port Washington

Aug. 16, 2014

La Tulipe, LLC, an established floral and event design company, has opened an elegant, European-inspired flower and gift shoppe in downtown Port Washington. Exquisite fresh flowers and bouquets, the signature staples of the 11-year-old business, and nearly-exclusive gift items will help create a memorable experience for shoppers at La Tulipe’s first retail location.

Known for her elegant taste and attention to detail, Principal Vicki Kunz will offer the highest quality flowers from as far away as Holland and Thailand to local farms. The store’s cooler is stocked with buckets of fresh blooms for “make your own” bouquets, prearranged bunches and vase arrangements, in a variety of price points. Home accessories, European-style lotions and soaps, and fine paper products reflects the quality that La Tulipe is known for. Floral-related accessories such as: specialty vases and terrariums along with permanent custom-made wreaths and seasonal garlands enhance other botanical-related offerings.

“Port Washington, with its charm and current revitalization, and its close proximity to Milwaukee, seemed like the perfect city for my business expansion,” said Vicki Kunz, principal of La Tulipe, LLC. “When I learned that this great location, across from the Duluth Trading Company, was home to a previously successful floral business, I knew that this was the ideal location for my business.”

Kunz will also use the 1,300 square foot shoppe to host seasonal classes and conduct wedding and special event consultation meetings. La Tulipe is known for providing exceptional floral designs with white glove service to its clients. This combination has enabled it to be listed as a preferred florist at Milwaukee’s premier event facilities, including: the Milwaukee Art Museum (MAM), The Pfister, Discovery World, The Grain Exchange, Harley-Davidson Museum, among others.

La Tulipe designed the floral for MAM’s signature gala, Bal du Lac, for the past two years. This past spring, it also created the floral experience at The Ballet Ball for the Milwaukee Ballet and the Donald Driver Foundation’s “Driven to Achieve” gala. La Tulipe also received the 3rd place Judge’s Award and 1st place People’s Choice Award for the 2013 Art in Bloom exhibition at MAM. In 2010, the selected La Tulipe for the “Best Florist of Milwaukee,” an honor that is voted on by past customers.
